Subject: Notable Dark Star
I hadn't thought about this show for awhile, thanks to Hunter for posting this on his Facebook page today. My daughter and I have been listening to this today, and it really is one of the best of 1984. The small hall shows, including Hult and Marin County are very good, as is Cedar Rapids on July 4, but this has one of the best live versions of Hell In A Bucket, and the second set is as good as any in the first half of this decade. The Scarlet>Grey>Fire is unusual, of course, and not only did they play Dark Star, they played it very well. I think this version outclasses the previous 4 played between 12-31-78 through 12-31-81. This isn't an elite show, but it is very, very good.
Subject: one of my fav shows
this was one of my fav all time shows,lots of x and fri the 13th full moon with a shooting star over the stage during dark star! can't ask for more than that ;) great quality board, i only have the dark star in sbd so ill have to download this at some point
Subject: A few points
Great show--of course.
1. On this night, a very cool Touch of Grey gets in the middle of a Scarlet/Fire sandwich...@ the legendary Greek nonetheless.
2. Last Dark Star until 1989--in case no one mentioned this fact.

This is a SUPER Matrix! Good show too! All of the instruments and vocals are well defined! Something special about the Greeks.........

Great night. Drove down from Seattle with my buddy Louis. Both if us just 18 and had ticks for all three shows and a place to crach is Sausalito.
The energy at these shows were never duplicated any place I went and saw them.
Subject: Got Sucked In!!
Out of all the shows I've heard on archive this Greek Theater run seems to suck me back in like a vortex. One can only imagine what it must have sounded liked to be there and here over the big P.A. system. I was only 6 at the time and my parents weren't heads so i got f'd in that aspect of life. Just from hearing the boards it sounded like the Dead ripped the columns off the joint. Listen to this run if you haven't heard it before and join me in this VORTEX!!!!

Subject: this is great!
It's like listening to a completely different show with the matrix, the SBD is awkwardly balanced (and it seems like this for a lot of '84)and the aud source really helps this show get to its full potential.
Subject: Rare '84 gems
'84 is not my cup of tea, but what I do like is mostly found in this run @ the Greek. On this night the SB, Fire and SB are sweet. Kudos for the curve balls of the TOG placement, execution a bit rough, and the DS encore. It's a nice DS, not sure if that's the word association one wants. Not a usual listener of Matrix shows, but This is the source to listen to. SBD is too hollow, the only Aud is very bright and trebly. This is just right.
Thanks for the Matrix
